Report RSS Alpha Project Basic Map Conversation Tutorial

This tutorial will show you the basics how to get custom maps to work in the Alpha Project Battlefield 2 total conversation!

Posted by on - Basic Mapping/Technical

First of all you have to open the init.con of the specific map you want to use in alpha project and replace the default soldier kits in the "LevelSettings" with the one used in the mod:

gameLogic.setKit 1 0 "MEC_Specops" "mec_specops_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 0 "US_Specops" "us_specops_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 1 "MEC_Sniper" "mec_sniper_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 1 "US_Sniper" "us_sniper_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 2 "MEC_Assault" "mec_assault_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 2 "US_Assault" "us_assault_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 3 "MEC_Support" "mec_support_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 3 "US_Support" "us_support_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 4 "MEC_Engineer" "mec_engineer_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 4 "US_Engineer" "us_engineer_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 5 "MEC_Medic" "mec_medic_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 5 "US_Medic" "us_medic_soldier"

gameLogic.setKit 1 6 "MEC_AT" "mec_at_soldier"
gameLogic.setKit 2 6 "US_AT" "us_at_soldier"

Now make sure you have a "CustomTextureSuffix" for your map, dont let the "" stay empty this might cause the map to crash, there need to be eighter desert, woodland or snow used for the "CustomTextureSuffix"

if v_arg1 == BF2Editor
LevelSettings.CustomTextureSuffix "desert"
else
texturemanager.customTextureSuffix "desert"
endIf

Next scroll down to the very bottom of your init.con and add the following code:

run ../../common/init/loader.con mec us desert

This code determinds what kind of camo paint the customization system will be using, as of now you can only have the following three types of weapon camos for you map: desert , woodland , snow

Thats the basics for making a custom map working for the alpha project mod, of corse do this not gurantee that any map will work with the mod!
There are maps that use custom objects from other mods for example which might require adding the custom content it is using to the map directly in order to make it work but thats another story :)

I hope i could help you guys to make your map working within alpha project!

I read it and I am surprised that people have a problem with adding maps to this mod, it is so trivial, that you do not really need tutorial, you only have to think for a moment :P
